Music Ensemble Rooms

There are two Music Ensemble rooms within the Media Factory to facilitate individual or group instrument playing or singing activities.

The Music Ensemble has been refurbished to create a dual-purpose music space. It is equipped with drum kit, piano and backline equipment making it suitable as a rehearsal space, but it can also be used as a live performance space for bands and small ensembles.

It includes all the features one would find in an intimate live music venue including raised stage, lighting rig, front of house PA and onstage monitors. Additionally, it incorporates a technical operator position allowing users the opportunity to gain experience of engineering sound & lighting for a live show.

ME125 has the provision of two sound isolating booths specifically designed for damping high SPL instruments allowing several “breakout” groups to work independently within teaching sessions. Recently, one of the booths was converted into a Digital Music Technology Lab focusing on analogue and modular synthesis incorporating equipment listed below.

Please note that these facilities are used for scheduled teaching activities. The spaces are available for all students to book outside of these times for individual or group study purposes via Student Web Room Booking
